The finals explained: Roadmap to the decider

With only one regular round remaining in the Intrust Super Cup and Hastings Deering Colts competitions, plenty of attention is turning to what this year's finals series may bring.

As has been the case for recent seasons, both competitions will operate under a top eight finals system, with three weeks of finals to take place in the lead-up to the grand finals on Sunday, October 10.

This year, the grand finals will be played at Moreton Daily Stadium and is set to be a day of fantastic rugby league with a great day of entertainment planned outside of the action on the field. 

The finals structure for the Intrust Super Cup in 2021 is as below:

The finals structure for the Hastings Deering Colts competition is as below:

Teams finishing in the top four will be rewarded for their consistent performances throughout the season with a “double chance” and in the first week of finals, the top four teams will play in qualifying finals, with the teams finishing in fifth place to eighth place playing in elimination finals.

In Week 2 of the finals, the winners of the two qualifying finals will have the weekend off, with the losers of those matches and the winners of the elimination finals facing off to see which team will progress.

Week 3 will see the two preliminary finals take place, with the winners of those two games heading to the decider.
